Did you Know?

Santander fell victim to a great fire in 1941. Fanned by a strong south wind, the fire burned for two days and destroyed the Old Town Hall, Jesús de Monasterio and Vargas streets and Atarazanas square buildings. There was only one casualty of the fire, a firefighter from Madrid killed in the line of duty, but thousands of families were left homeless and the city was plunged into chaos. The fire destroyed the greater part of the medieval town centre and gutted the city's Romanesque cathedral. Walk the restored streets of this now beautiful city!
